BacK HoMe

after a wonderful month away in the caravan... YiPPeee...
I think having a few OPAM finishes this early in the month is just FaNTasTiC... & now that I'm home & can get into the cubbyhole...I'll get a few more projects completed as well.
First item... a warm & cosy jumper for GS1...
Second item... a cute & pretty jumper for GD1...
Third & Fourth Finish... are 2 of my 3 Christmas in July gifts (sent in the recent swap) which were made for Sue. A hand embroidered XMAS table topper & an appliqued SANTA/JOY wall hanging...
Fifth Finish... is my ruler cover sent to Christine in a swap with FHFS...
I'll be back tomorrow to show you what I received in the two swaps mentioned above...
I hope you'll come back & visit me again...

LetS BooK It

This month I am knitting again... but this time it's for GS1.
I'm using a pattern that I photocopied at home...so it's NoT a great pic...but the pattern is awesome.
Thanks to Sharon from Vroomans Quilts blog for encouraging us to use our patterns, books and printouts each month. I love it when I get a little PuSH to get things done!

KeePing BuSy...

& getting close to another finish this month. A lovely "jumper" for GD1... in a pattern I designed.
* * * * *
I love sitting & hand embroidering at night too.  It's soooo relaxing...
I've finished stitching a design by Michelle Ridgway at Rag-Tag Stitchin'... called Merry and Bright...but the project will have to wait until I return home to complete it.
I'm sure Michelle still has the pattern for sale over on her blog... it's a cutie...so go grab a copy.
This will need a good press before I use it.
